Integrating local and indigenous knowledge with science for hydro-meteorological disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation
iwasaki a,n, EmmanuelLuna b, Syamsidik c, RajibShawd

Coastal areas in Asian communities are extremely vulnerable to disasters, such as earth quakes, tsunamis, cyclones, droughts, landslides, and floods – in combination with environmental degradation and climate change.. Their vulnerability is also affected by political and economic conditions, and the structure and organization of their societies. Local and indigenous knowledge is key to increasing the resilience of coastal and small island communities to hydro-meteorological hazards and the impacts of climate change. An important factor that can increase the resilience of communities is their local knowledge, However, it has yet to be fully harnessed by scientists, practitioners, and policy-makers. Such knowledge needs to be integrated with science and technology before it can be used in policies, education, and actions related to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, Integration of local and indigenous knowledge with Science is an important process which enables practitioners and scientists to implement activities and research to increase resilience in coastal and small island communities.
